I came across this blog post, “Why you should quit your job and travel now.”
And, I guess this is the reason why I hate to call our travels “travel” and vacations as “vacations.” Because it always connotes “temporary.” It’s like “vacations” and “travels” mean “escaping from life.” It’s like making vacation and travels such a privilege.
It’s like when I say I’m out for a travel or vacation feels like I-hate-my-job, and so I travel. The thing is I love our job. When we “travel,” we bring the current life with us to where we go. And, Thankfully, I don’t really need to travel to feel alive.
I believe that if someone needs to have a vacation or travel to have a “life.” Seriously, rethink what you are currently doing, and quit! Not because for travel, but because you’re dead!
SO PLEASE TRAVEL BLOGGERs STOP SAYING QUIT YOUR JOB, AND TRAVEL NOW TO FEEL ALIVE! BECAUSE BEING ALIVE COMES IN DIFFERENT FORMS! IT FEELS LIKE PEOPLE NEED TO TRAVEL TO HAVE A LIFE! IT FEELS LIKE JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT BEEN TO INDIA, YOU HAVE A LESSER LIFE!
Life can just be hiding in your kitchen, making up all kinds of recipes. A cook may travel, not because he’s imprisoned by his kitchen, but to taste the other places’ food. Life can be caving in the basement, painting / designing / sewing / making music. And, if ever they come out of basement, it’s because the world needs to see their work, or they need to see something to add to their “work.”
And, for me traveling is not always about going to a new place. Traveling can also be about seeing old places in new ways. Traveling can also be about seeing old places from another person’s perspective.
